You Foster a Sense of Entitlement
Being a parent is tough — we really don’t like to say no to our kids and our kids really don’t like it when they are told no. So when kids become accustomed to hearing "yes" most of the time, it ends up adding up to is a sense of entitlement where they feel like nothing is enough. "I think when our children whine for something and we give into them, we create that sense of entitlement," said Glickman. "They want this and they’re going to whine for it and they’re going to get it. It doesn’t take long for that to morph into this sense that they’re entitled to — that this is something they should have just because they want it."
